Your monthly horoscope for August — based on your Chinese zodiac sign — is here! First, what does August have in store for everybody? The main theme of August is sharing love. It can be among your close circle of friends and family. You can also spread the kindness to others. Weirdly enough, August will also test the strength of your connections and convictions. Will you let peer pressure make you do something that goes against your inner truth?


Will you say what needs to be said even if it brings momentary discomfort and exposes another's weakness? Will you show love only during the fun and happy times and abandon another when the times get tough? August will reveal what is true and what is not. Now let's focus on each Chinese zodiac sign's monthly horoscope for August.

Monthly horoscopes for all 12 Chinese zodiac signs:


(1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

Strength of will and courage of convictions are in store for you in August, Rat. You will encounter situations that will help you grow and step out of your comfort zone.

Your decisions will directly impact your life quality this month, especially in the latter half. Focus on your relationship with your loved ones this month and show them love through gifts and sentimental gestures. If you are dealing with a Rooster or Rabbit, read their horoscopes too so you can hold your ground and remain aware of potential mischief.

Take heart, dear Pig, as we step into the month of August. While challenges may arise, remember that every obstacle presents an opportunity for growth and learning. If you find yourself facing financial difficulties, embrace them as a chance to reassess your priorities and financial habits. Remember that tough times are temporary, and with perseverance, you will overcome them.

In matters of relationships, some of you may experience changes, and it's important to approach them with grace and understanding. If you encounter unexpected breakups or the end of significant connections, view it as an opportunity for self-discovery and personal growth. During this time of change, cherish the memories and lessons learned from the past, and be open to creating new, meaningful connections in the future.


Unfortunately, some of you may experience the loss of a loved one during this period. Remember to lean on your support network and allow yourself to grieve. Cherish the memories and love you shared with them, knowing that they will always be with you in spirit. Now is the time to exercise caution and make well-considered decisions. Closing chapters that no longer serve you will make room for new and exciting opportunities. Embrace the possibility of a fresh start and remain open to the positive changes that are just around the corner.

To find clarity and peace of mind, consider taking a peaceful hike through nature or exploring a neighboring city. The beauty of the world around us can often provide solace and perspective during challenging times. If you have family members with the zodiac signs of Rooster, Rabbit, or Horse, reading their horoscopes might offer insights and guidance for the whole family. Remember, my dear Pig, you have the strength and resilience to navigate through any challenges that come your way. Embrace the lessons of the present, and keep your heart open to the promising future that awaits you.
